LEGAL PROCEDURES …. RESPONSE TO ORDERS TO SHOW CAUSE IN RIVERSIDE

Riverside Local Rule 3116 – Response to Orders to Show Cause

Unless otherwise specified in the Order to Show Cause, any response in opposition to an Order to Show Cause (a) shall be in the form of a written declaration and (b) shall be filed no less than four court days before the hearing on the Order to Show Cause. The Court may find the failure to file a timely declaration to constitute an admission by the responding party that there are no meritorious grounds on which to oppose the action that is the subject of the Order to Show Cause. In that event, the Court may vacate the hearing and issue any order consistent with that admission.

(Adopted 5-13-13, effective 7-1-13; amended 4-24-14, effective 7-1-14; amended 10-27-17, effective 1-1-18)

FYI – I understand several attorneys have already been sanctioned regarding this Local Rule. One attorney was sanctioned for not dismissing a case. Another attorney was sanctioned $1,500 for not filing a Case Management Statement. Sounds like the Judges at Riverside Superior are laying down the law
